Post subject:  1927 Dodge Touring Wandering Steering

I have recently acquired a 1927 Dodge Touring and the steering is challenging to say the least. Its more like an aim in the general direction you would want to go and eventually car would get there. I'm constantly having to make significant adjustments to try and maintain a straight ahead travel. I just jacked the front up and while theres minimal free play in the straight ahead position as soon as you get off centre the play gets progressively worse until we talking between 6-8 inches at 1/2 to full lock. There is no binding and wheels move smoothly left to right and vice versa. Front wheel bearing feel fine and there doesn't seem to be excessive play on kingpins or steering joints.

I'm thinking I'll need to remove steering box for overhaul but before I do that any ideas?
